WHAT IS ZA’ATAR?
Za’atar is one of the most beguiling spices in the Middle Eastern pantry, but also one of the more confusing. That’s because the name refers to two separate but related things – first, a wild-growing, perennial plant that is native to the Levant, and second, a spice blend that contains that herb.
THE ZA’ATAR SPICE BLEND RECIPE
Za’atar spice blend pairs the dried and crumbled leaves of the za’atar plant with complementary spices and seeds. Exact ratios and recipes vary widely, depending on where they are being made. But most traditional za’atar blends include ground sumac berries, which lend a tart and lemony flavor, toasted sesame seeds for a mellow nuttiness, just enough salt to highlight and balance the flavors, and a bit of olive oil to pull everything together.
